Course Content (Syllabus)
From the early writings of his youth to "Philosophy of Law", the problematic of the construction of the social and political element remains central to Hegel's thought, defining the scope of a comprehensive theory of practice which is inextricably linked to the epistemological and methodological schemes of the theoretical philosophy of the German philosopher. The course focuses on the systematic identification of the form and content of Hegel's political view, while emphasizing its multifaceted perception in the 19th and 20th centuries. This includes, among others, the 19th century leftists and rightists Hegelians, the influence of the political Hegel on Marx, his reading from the Frankfurt school, as well as his perception by 20th-century French and Anglo-Saxon thought.
